EXTREME WEATHER AND SNOW WEATHER PROCEDURES
If you are unsure of what to do on a snow day, please review our Extreme Weather and Snow Weather Procedures. This document is located on the school website (www.ourladyofsorrows.ca). Please do not call the school as the phones will be busy. Our website will be updated by 7:15 a.m. as it is difficult to predict the exact times when snow may fall. Thank you for your diligence.
